Breaking down the cold-chain barriers that stop food products reaching the customers that need them
With global food wastage estimated as high as 50% of all food produced, there is extensive evidence and research around the need for better cold chain provision from food to store. Research also widely recognises that ‘in developing countries, the lack of access to cold chain systems and reliable energy sources required to power them, results in large post-harvest losses 10-50%’.
It’s in this area of food loss where Sure Chill technology could best be deployed to improve the cold chain provision and reduce wasted food and money.
Why Sure Chill?
Sure Chill has the potential to extend shelf life through;
The ability to cool without power
Keeping food fresher for longer
Eliminating the risk of freeze damage to foods
Growing pressure of a growing population
Developing countries need improved agricultural productivity to feed growing populations, and better connections between farmers and different market options to drive economic development.
The global middle class is also expected to increase by about 3 billion by 2030, with much of this growth anticipated in these developing economies. This in turn will require new food systems to be established that create more rural-urban supply chains, and will need to produce new types of food to meet changing consumer expectations.
